Best Run Flat Deal

Recommended Posts

Lexus Southampton kindly advised me at my last service that my SC430 needed 4 new tyres and promptly gave me a quote for £1400.00 which they would not budge on. (Bridgestone Potenza Run Flat RE040). Looking on the web I found plenty of suppliers for the tyres only, at about £650.00 for four, including delivery. But finding a fitter in Southampton was a very different matter, despite recommendations from the tyre suppliers. Many do not have the correct equipment to fit run flats or the 18" size, some have never even heard of them, and especially don't know about the sensors. South Coast Wheels being one I would not touch either after other posts on the forum.

However, there is one excellent company in Southampton that went out of his way to not only match the best price on the web I'd found for the later Bridgestone model too, but is also a four wheel alignment and sports car specialist too. He is the inventor of the four wheel alignment machine called Supertracker and took over three hours to carefully remove and refit my tyres, to include 4 wheel tracking and balancing, all for £703.00 inc. vat. The service from the owner Rob, is superb and very thoroughly recommended, whatever vehicle you have but especially for run flats as he made sure that he had every bit of correct equipment, knowledge about the car and the tyres, with superb clean facilities to boot. He is also a trained Toyota mechanic.

Details for Supertracker is Tel: 023 8044 3325 and can be found at Hazel Road , Woolston, Southampton, web site
